I thoroughly enjoyed the first issue of this mini, but wasn't totally sold until this one. I wouldn't mind seeing an ongoing grow out of this If the next couple of issue can hold up, but it would likely lose some of the magic if Eternia is reverted to its status quo. This book, like some other 1980s-based titles, is taking poorly written, toy-hawking premise and turning it into a grown-up, three-dimensional work we never could have hoped for on television. Buy this series if you're a man child He-Man fan, or if you just have fond memories of watching the cartoon from your high-chair""you'll enjoy it. Four and a half stars. Read Full Review
I like the more mature, violent take on MotU. There are a lot of references to some die-hard continuity, for instance Trapjaw's real name Kronis and the fact that Skeletor is Adam's uncle. (I'd actually forgotten that!) It's kind of neat how they are rolling this series out. Last issue, we met Adam and Beastman. This issue we meet Trapjaw and a certain female warrior. I will say, the dark tone of this series varies considerably from the old depictions in various minicomics and other juvenile materials and jars alarmingly from the old cartoon series, which at times bordered on comedic. Depending on your preference, this could be good or bad. Overall, I'm just enjoying the ride. Read Full Review
